Passive Solar Modern Prefab Off Grid And Old Time Dancing.

Our family's own off grid modern prefab from Green Modern Kits.
The (unmodified) passive solar modern prefab house The R1 Residential.
It has been a busy week regarding modern prefab house kits
Here is the modified modern prefab R1 Residential, with the R1 Residential Addition, also modified for planning.

The ventilation stack was removed to meet historic zoning in the northwest- hopefully this version will pass through the very last planning hearing, which we expect. The hearing will be in March, at which point I will have another update!


I have also been busy this week on potential Dogtrot Mod modern prefab house projects in the south *and* northwest. I'll keep you posted on those if they happen.  This week has been filled with prefab project meetings! The people involved are great, this part of the planning projects is always fun for me as we all get to know each other and learn about each individual homesite where a prefab house will reside.

At our own off grid prefab house we also have news: the new battery arrives Monday! Just in time to sail us through the rest of  winter. *Phew.*

Speaking of winter, we traveled to Richmond and here is what I observe when we visit: I am freezing. We are in an adorable 1920s foursquare with the old awesome radiators, yet... once you live through winters in a SIP house, where the structural insulated panels maintain temperatures and have no draft... oh you notice when you are in a "regular" house...! 

I am always layering up just to be comfortable, even with the temperature set to 68 I can feel the drafty chill...

...but we warmed up quickly with dear friends, and fantastic old time music!


It is great to travel to the city to see family and friends.
But after about 24 hours I get itchy to get back home where we roam free...

...cutting horse trails
building forts and tree houses
riding riding riding with our Z...



This week, while inspecting the Pips latest trail, we came upon an old discarded Colt 45 from hunters long ago... and within it, an ecosystem!
GhettoNature.

We removed the trash from the woods and now that trash-terrarium is... modern art.
